to he replace it now is for us to cut social security, medicare, and not close a single loophole. and i have to tell you, if that's an argument they want to have before the court of public opinion, that is an argument i'm more than willing to engage in. >> but if there's one thing republicans are pretty much united on, it's that revenue is absolutely not an option. >> this quest to continually to raise taxes is not going anywhere. we've already done that. >> americans do not support sacrificing real spending cuts for more tax hikes. >> this is the wrong time for sequestration to take place. we should be able to sit down together and resolve this without again asking the american people to have their taxes increased. >> i want to bring in roll call cheryl and washington bureau chief ryan grim. good morning. >> good morning. >> the president says let's replace this with taxes and alternate cuts. republicans say cuts but no taxes. is it clear, ryan, who has the upper hand here? >> it's not entirely clear. republicans certainly feel like they have the upper hand here, much more so than the
, and continues the slow but steady economic recovery. it comes right after we learned the u.s. economy shrank for the first time in three years. gdp fell up .1% in the fourth quarter of 2012. part of the economic pause was because of hurricane sandy. but it was also because of big cuts in defense spending. >>> we also learned yesterday that members of the president's job council are out of a job. the council had a two-year charter that will not be renewed. this morning, speaker john boehner said this is the wrong time for president obama to scrap his jobs council and delay his budget. month after month, we see the same thing, high unemployment and even more debt. the white house knew this criticism was coming. >> when we hear some of the somewhat ridiculous criticisms about this, they come from people on capitol hill who have consistently opposed every growth initiative and job creation initiative the president has put forward. >> i want to bring in "washington post" political reporter karen tumelty and michael crowley. good morning. >> nice to be here. >> he asked the chairman of the white h

to make the critical ones. >> is this something you would support or could use as a starting point? >> we need to use it as a starting point. i'm not telling you that it's perfect. you know? i don't think, you know, senator simpson walked down from the mountain with all of the solutions. i think we need to sit and starting talking about this as opposed to to posturing. whether the president invites a republican or knows his name? these are absurd postulations. we can't grow the economy when people don't know what it looks like. >> you're on the subcommittee on immigration and huge outrage from the republicans about the leak of those details on the plan of immigration. when you look at the details, is the white house plan more in line with your beliefs? what about the senate bipartisan plan? tell me where you think this is right now. >> again, this is a perfect example what is going on that is wrong. the president's plan is right on all four of where senator rubio has been talking about. he hits all of the points. you know, it's about securing the border. it's about verification and findin
